Bring snacks from home, but not normal snacks that you give them, do something exciting for the kids. This will save money and give them something to look forward to as well!

What's a great way to relieve stress? (The more unusual the better!)

Siobhan

Making sure everyone is out of the kitchen and then cooking or baking something all by yourself. Something healthy yet sweet is always a plus!

What are your tips for organizing a child's closet so that you can stay ahead of growth spurts and seasonal changes?

Siobhan

I think that since kids grow so fast you don't really need to put clothes away to use for next year, because odds are they will be out grown. I like to keep all of the current sizes in the drawers and in the closet, organized by type: sweaters, sweatshirts, tshirts, shorts, pants. This way if the weather changes often you can just grab what you need. I would also recommend keeping a storage container in the closet, this way as soon as you notice that your child has out grown an item you can put it in the storage container so it does not take up space in the drawers/closet.

What's your best budget tip for shopping for back-to-school necessities like school supplies, backpacks, uniforms, labels and lunchboxes? Include a link to a photo if you have one!

Siobhan

Think ahead, the biggest deals happen now but come november crayons will be broken and run down and will need replacing. Make sure you buy enough now while the prices are upwards of 90% off to get you through the whole school year.

I like to keep all of my ziploc bags/ tin foil/ plastic wrap in a file folder holder, it keeps them perfectly neat and all in one place. Plus this way I don't have to take up a whole drawer in my kitchen with them.
